Aoki-Hirota, Kawajiri-Yokota Added to Dynamite!! 2009

DREAM lightweights Shinya Aoki and Tatsuya Kawajiri will not face each other at Dynamite!! 2009, but will instead participate in separate bouts taking on two of Sengoku's top lightweights, promoters announced Tuesday.

Aoki, the DREAM lightweight champion, will face Mizuto Hirota, the Sengoku lightweight titleholder. Meanwhile, Kawajiri, who was rumored to challenge Aoki for the title before the DREAM vs. Sengoku theme came about, will fight Kazunori Yokota, who lost in the first-ever Sengoku lightweight bout to Satoru Kitaoka.
